All On Board
This is an iOS app for on-boarding people who have just rented a car. The app uses iBeacons to determine the make and model of the car and provides useful information in your language about it (where are the lights / wind screen wipers, what sort of fuel it takes) and puts you in quick contact with other people who have recently rented this type of car if you have any questions.
Its using Elixir Phoenix framework as a back end API to get the data for the cars. It also is being used to communicate through a chat server on the phone. The project for the Back End can be found herehttps://github.com/northerner/all_onboard
The app is being written on Objective C and uses various Pods for styling, monitoring beacons, database storage etc.
The app was build in HackManchester 2015 event and it was on the 3 finalists of rentalcars.com and on the 3 finalists of The Barclays/Rise Challenge. We won the competition of The The Barclays/Rise Challenge - Create the best use of beacons for the Rise community.
